There are many challenges in building sustainable and thriving communities in the Arctic while addressing the impacts of a warming landscape due to climate change. As one of eight Arctic nations that comprise the Arctic Council, the United States, under the Biden Administration has called for an increase in international cooperation to address climate change in all facets of its domestic and foreign policy, including the Arctic.
Estonia, a close neighbor of the Arctic applying for Observer status in the Arctic Council, is committed to mitigating the impacts of climate change and advancing sustainable development in the Arctic.
This discussion will offer an exchange of views by experts from the United States and Estonia on ways to promote collaboration to address the critical issues facing the Arctic, especially in the areas of research, environmental protection, and sustainable development.
